Welcome, Tuesday! I cannot believe how fast March has come and gone! We are so close to April; it is crazy. I hope you are enjoying warmer weather wherever you live.
My husband and I had a good Easter weekend spent with family. I hope you had a great Easter too. Easter has a way of reminding me of new life, hope, grace and crazy life detours of following Jesus.
2016 has not been the year I thought it would be. It has been entirely different in so many ways. I have had to let go of a lot of things. We all have expectations of ourselves, our lives and others. It's part of our human nature. This year has gone completely different than I envisioned it to be. Some things I would change, others I wouldn't. I've had a lot of road detours, lane closures and stormy weather that has changed my road trip.
Friends have come, and friends have gone, but true friends have remained, no matter the season. It's been the same with family. Some can stand the weathering of the severe seasons and some cannot. They can either handle the lane changes, or they don't know how to switch lanes. I've learned to let it go. I was a part of a party where the theme was "Letting it go" and it continues to be the theme of my life this year. I'm just letting people and situations go because stewing helps nothing. Worrying is a waste of time. Life is way more abundant and more fun when you can navigate the crazy road trips of life.
All the plans I had for this year have been thrown out the window, not by my own hand, but that just means there is always something greater. My fitness goals and my bike plans were not in the cards for the summer and instead I've been detoured. Sometimes, you just take the detour for the wild ride it is, take a road trip and "let it all go." Health has been an extra challenge this year and I just say, let's take an adventure because you can't do much else. So, just smile and keep plugging through because life is in the detours. It's better this way.
Have you had to "let go" of anything this year? What plans have changed your life that were unexpected detours?
